Riff: Iggy and The Stooges – “Dirty Deal”

Apr 30, 2013

Met a creep who gets things done/He told me I’m the number one/He knew I was innocent/I knew he was fucking bent

from Dirty Deal lyrics by Iggy and The Stooges

Iggy and the Stooges attack crooked, underhanded charlatans of the recording industry (and the world in general). The execution is somewhat hit-and-miss, but the bomb-heavy lines are impressive; [LISTEN].
